Action Essentials HD: Coming Soon

It has been a dangerous couple of months filming explosions and all sorts of action stock footage for the new Action Essentials 2 library. A release date will be set soon.

This collection is just FREAKING ridiculous! That’s all there is to say for now.

High Resolution Poster

UPDATE: To answer a few general questions…

  • Over 90% of elements are live action shots, like explosions and blood etc.
  • 100% NEW Footage and Tutorials; NOT an upgrade or anything like that.
  • Yes there is some high speed stuff; I’ll explain more later.
  • The Box is 3D rendered and just meant to be cool.
  • No cameramen died.
